asmeik's Latest Product Reviews

Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme

Jan 24, 2009 - This was my first Miss Jessie's product and I was really excited to try it, even though I've read a lot of mixed reviews on their products. "Thankfully" I was able to purchase a 2oz sample size (retail price: $9...for a 2oz sample! I should have known better) I want my money back. I didn't like anything about this product. In my reviews I try to give the pros and cons but I couldn't think of any pros here. First it smells awful - an overwhelming, cloying scent that seems to be an odd mixture of Pepto-Bismol and Johnson's baby lotion (no kidding). It left my hair feeling heavily coated and greasy. I tried it on both damp and dry hair and it didn't seem to moisturize either way. And its no wonder, just look at the ingredients. Bees Wax? Mineral oil and petrolatum? I'd think the people at Miss Jessie's would know better. These ingredients, and a few others in here, coat the hair and don't allow moisture in, they leave built-up on hair and scalp and they attract dirt and dust. Besides, mineral oil and petrolatum are cheap industrial products that should not be in a product that costs this much. And who can get past that price!

Mixed Chicks Leave-in Conditioner

Jan 24, 2009 - Pros: Initially made my hair feel soft; Defined my curls. Cons: "Chemical" scent; Took forever to absorb into my hair and that subsequently increased my hair's drying time (thank God I tried it on a weekend and not when I had to go to work); Left a film on my hair that dried into flakes resembling dandruff; Did not mix well with other styling products (again, more flaking!!); The price I paid ($19+Tax at a store in NYC); The ingredients are suspect.
